I have setup a django site using Helicon Zoo with IIS 8.0 on Windows Server 2012. My site includes the /admin, and I want secure only the admin with HTTPS. I have been searching on the Web for a while, but still cannot figure out how to do it.

I did find out some solution for Apache, Nginx, etc. [e.g., http://www.redrobotstudios.com/blog/2009/02/18/securing-django-with-ssl/], but NOT IIS 8.0.

  • If you are going to the trouble to set up TLS why not use it for the entire site? There is really no good reason to not so so. – EEAA Jan 28 '14 at 12:32
  • My current situation does not allow me to buy a certificate. If I force to use TLS, the browser of other (external) users will complain the insecure certificate, although the internal users like me feels ok with it. – skyuuka Jan 29 '14 at 6:46
